New exhibits are moving Omaha art lovers
On a recent Saturday afternoon, visitors sat mesmerized by a piece of art at the Joslyn Art Museum.
They weren’t staring at a photograph, a painting or a sculpture.
They were staring at a projection of a swirling, undulating mass of botanicals that covered an entire gallery wall.
A group of four little girls got close to the piece, a computer-generated image called “Madame Curie” by artist Jennifer Steinkamp, until they saw their own small black shadows. Their hands busily created animal shapes in the light.
Art that uses technology rather than paint or clay can be found at several locations in Omaha right now.
